Many people choose to go the route of the wedding planner because this is the type of event that they find most exciting. Who could blame them? A wedding is a joyful, happy affair by its very nature.
A wedding is a different kind of event for more reasons than the obvious. Many of the other events that are planned require the event planner to be able to market the event successfully. These events often require payment negotiations, ticket sales and all of the other things that are involved with running a business event.
However, this does not mean that the role of the wedding planner is easier than that of a corporate event planner or a conference manager; it just requires different skills.
